RULES: You have to post the 4th picture in the 4th folder in your pictures folder. Then give a brief description before you tag a few others.

So, I love Photoshop. When I was in college I took a class where we learned how to use a bunch of different Adobe programs. I figured out how to put different faces on random bodies when learning Photoshop....and now my life hasn't been the same. This is one example of the MANY creations I've made. This is my friend Martin from Moses Lake, Washington. I do believe he requested this picture. I have a couple folders dedicated to my Photoshop masterpieces.

I tag: Brittany, Tyson, Ashley, and Diana.

So, from time to time I become obsessed with things. Here are my current favorites.

- Tzatziki. I could eat this on everything...seriously. Trader Joe's makes a fantastic one, you should try it out. Guaranteed deliciousness.

- Pedicures. Who doesn't like a good pedicure? And it's even better when they can do great designs! I've had plaid, argyle, stripes. It's amazing. Love this place! (I think you can click to enlarge)

- Racquetball. My new hobby. One random day my friend, Heather, decided we should learn to play racquetball. We play only twice a week. We suck, but we're showing improvement!

- Honda CR-V. I want one of these real bad. If only I could learn to save money...

- Subway. 'Nuff said. I'm obsessed.

- Sephora Products. Ok, so I'm not a huge makeup lover. I don't experiment often, but one day I got adventurous. The Urban Decay shadow primer is amazing! It's hot in Arizona (obviously), so eye make up can tend to crease (which I HATE). This primer will have your shadow and eye liner look the same from morning to night. It's wonderful. And the Givenchy mascara! Oh boy! The little ball looks interesting. It takes a little while longer to put on, but it makes your lashes look great. With a $30 price tag, I'm not sure how much I'll keep up with it, but I do love it!

- iPod Shuffle. I've had a big, 30GB iPod for a long time...which is my number 1 love. But this little shuffle is so perfect for working out.

And last but not least.....

-Fresh Prince. I am fortunate enough to live 7 minutes away from my work. Going out to lunch not only was a waste of money, but very unhealthy (not everyone wanted Subway everyday). I try to go home everyday for lunch. I drive home, turn on the TV and you better believe that I watch 2 episodes of Fresh Prince. 11:00, be there or be square!
So, there's my obsessions. For now. They change almost weekly.

Apt #221

A little place I like to call home:

They told us we could paint as long as we paint it back to white when we leave. Although it was bigger chore then we expected-it was worth it!


(I purchased my own mattress...I'm such a grown up!)

My mom and her friend, Tandy, drove all the way down to Arizona to help us get out place put together. Don't know what I would have done without them! :)

(I bought my own table! Look how cute it is!)

(No Mom, I haven't put my bed skirt on yet.)

(I love this little night stand! Shout out to the Pasadena Flea Market!)

Alright, well, there's where I live! It's obviously not completely finished, but we're working on it!! We've already found some great places around Phoenix. I can't wait to get more stuff! :)

PS- Cassie's room is cute too, but I don't know if she wants me posting pictures of her room. Maybe after she actually finishes her room, she'll post some pictures!

Happy Almost Halloween!

It's that time of year again, Halloween. This time last year I was buying platform boots on Ebay to complete my "Scary Spice" outfit. I miss my old roommates/fellow Spice Girls!!

So, Anyway. This weekend some friends and I went to a few haunted houses. I don't typically like getting scared, but my wonderful friend Heather loves Halloween. She wants to do everything related to the holiday. (that's where we went)

As most of you know, I'm kind of noticeable. My hair just attracts attention, I'm usually pretty used to it. The haunted houses were no exception. Walking through one house a creepy lady said, "protect the blondes. They're an easy target" and then laughed all evil-like. Then, we went to another house. At first I was like, "oh man, this one is gonna be lame", boy was I wrong! Every single "witch" kept chasing me and shouting "Hey Curly Q....." and getting all up in my face. They even cornered us and were making really gross/scary noises. After the house was over, the creepiest "witch" came out of some secret door and chased us through the park. All he kept saying was, "Come here curly....." I don't know why they didn't give Heather a chase, she has curly hair too. But no, they apparently thought it would be funnier to give me a heart attack. Next time I'm wearing a hat.

I hate haunted houses.

Me & Valerie.

Valerie, Mary, Heather and Me. Pre-heart attacks.

We tried to have "scared" faces. Heather just looks insane, and I obviously thought it was pretty funny.

Heather looks handicapped.

University of Phoenix girls!

This is typical of our relationship.

Heather, Me and Valerie.

October, I think.

Where is Fall?!

I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be fall...I mean, it is October. Apparently here, in the desert, they don't have a fall season.

Today was a cloudy, 89 degrees. The coolest day I've experienced thus far. That's weird. I finally believe everyone that told me I would be sick of the sun come the end of September. I just want to wear all my sweaters! But that wont be happening for a while...just check out this next week's weather forecast. Yup, Wednesday and Thursday will be 99 degrees.

I guess I still have some getting used to down here.
